 Monday's Moments for Writer Moms
by: M.B.Varville-Rodriguez
 
 
Mondays can be a notorious challenge for many of us. It's the start of our work week. The kids go back to school or have on-line classes. We get ready for another week of meal prep and the grocery shopping this requires. There are loads of wash to be done as we make sure everyone is ready for their activities. Mondays are just hard. I could attempt to soften this reality by proclaiming fairies and unicorns really do exist and all of us have plenty of inspiration to get through our week. But that would be less than helpful, right? Sometimes it's okay to rant just a little. Here's your chance. 

You hereby have permission to give me five reasons to lose your sheets and pillowcases. (Yes, that is a euphemism for the curse words you really want to explode into the universe.) Here's mine to get you started:

1.    Dust. It's everywhere. It makes us sneeze. I hate dusting. That's all.

2.    The price of gasoline. It's gone way up. Ridiculously up. I just filled my tank. It left me with a bit of an empty feeling - in my wallet.

3.    Laundry - Why does it take so long to do it and so little time for the hamper to fill up again?

4.    The lottery - Somebody has to win it eventually, right? Could it be me this time? Sigh. I already know what I'd do with it. Good stuff. Really good stuff!
 
5.    Traffic - So many reasons we need to be careful and look out for each other and so many individuals who feel that driving in traffic is a sport where they want to be the winners. (Even if that means they must be inconsiderate a-holes in the process.)
 
So how's your Monday? I usually love to post inspirational crap too, but heck...there are plenty of other groups and blogs that do just that for you.  And it's okay to have days where you just don't want to marinate in all that positivity. It's for you that I wrote this. Because a healthy balance of inspiration and a good rant is in order once in a while.

Inspirations for a Friday in March
By: M.B.Varville-Rodriguez

Today's Goals:

F - Find the place that helps you feel at peace
 and calms your spirit.
 It doesn't have to be a physical location. 
It can be something you think about 
as your close your eyes and meditate. 


R - Recognize your strengths, value, and contributions.
It's okay to receive a compliment 
and accept it graciously.


I - Invite others to share their insights and resources. 
Sharing inspirations is a great way 
to push us toward our goals.


D - Decide what is and what is not important 
to the big picture.
 Let go of the things
 that prevent forward motion.


A - Admit mistakes and apologize for oversights. 
It doesn't make you less of a person for being wrong. 
We can't be perfect 100% of the time.


Y - Young people have a lot to offer 
if we'd take a few moments
 to stop what we are doing 
and really listen to their perspectives.



Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for taking time to read 
this blog.You are appreciated!

Creating the calm when babies are stressed

 

Coping with Colic & Creating Calm

Originally Written by: Nested Bean as

"The Dreaded Colic"

One way babies communicate their wants and needs is by crying. Cries may have different sounds, tones, and inflections depending on the type of need, and parents become amazing translators for each of these cries. But sometimes babies can exhibit prolonged crying, and it seems like there's no way to comfort them. If this sounds like your house and your little one is inconsolable, it might not be regular crying. Your baby might be experiencing colic.

What exactly is colic? An article written by Mayo clinic staff reports: 
"Colic is frequent, prolonged and intense crying or fussiness in a healthy infant. Colic can be particularly frustrating for parents because the baby's distress occurs for no apparent reason and no amount of consoling seems to bring any relief. These episodes often occur in the evening, when parents themselves are often tired."

No matter how you define colic, it’s difficult for any parent to see their sweet little one inconsolable. The onset of colic is sudden, takes parents by surprise, and leaves parents feeling helpless. Normal efforts to console their baby might feel completely ineffective during this time.

How to Determine Crying vs. Colic

As both you and your baby get used to each other, determining whether your baby’s cries are average or excessive can be a bit tricky. "The Rule of 3" is most helpful for parents and doctors when determining if your baby has colic.

  • Your baby is 3 weeks or older
  • Your baby cries at least 3 hours or more
  • You observe this behavior at least 3 days per week for 3 or more weeks in a row.

 How to Help Your Baby

While there’s no “cure” for colic, there are some strategies that parents can try to alleviate the symptoms and create a calmer environment for everyone.

  • The Airplane hold: Also referred to as the "colic carry" or "colic hold." Try holding your baby belly side down on your forearm, as if you were doing the airplane with them. The light pressure and warmth from your arm on their bellies is known to help with colic.
  • Bring on the noise: A slow and constant humming eases babies during colic. Start the washing machine, vacuum cleaner, or a soft noise machine to calm your little one during the onset of colic.
  • Change of guards: Handing your baby to someone else may at times do the trick. Babies can sense your tense energy.
  • Swaddle your baby: The pressure of the swaddle and cocoon-like feeling is particularly calming as it mimics the womb environment and helps reduce the impact of being over stimulated.

When it comes to swaddling, not all swaddles are created equal. During this stressful time, you’re going to want the best. That’s where Nested Bean and their Zen Swaddle® come in!

Zen Swaddle's construction reduces random arm movements and can help ease your baby's discomfort. It's also a great alternative to the airplane hold. The lightly weighted design adds gentle pressure on baby's belly to ease colic.

It’s time to create the calm that you and your baby deserve. Check out Nested Bean’s article for more information and tips regarding colic.  You are invited to do your own research and check out this site to learn more about weighted sleepwear. Hang in there. Nested Bean is here to help! We look forward to hearing how you're doing.
